What do DSE and NFC mean?


(inbox only) #1

I've seen that apple engineers use DSE and NFC in commits.I couldn't find
on Internet what these terms mean.So, what do these terms mean ?

I believe these are Dead Store <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_store>
Elimination, and "No Functional Change" (reassurance for why tests weren't
added along with a commit, or that a commit is so minor it doesn't need
review).
